Schuylkill Co. men sentenced in fraud case

Two Schuylkill County businessmen who admitted to defrauding the federal government out of $121 million will be spending time behind bars.

Authorities say Dennis Campbell of Orwigsburg has been sentenced to 24 months in prison and a $119 million fine.

Timothy Hubler of Ashland faces 33 months in prison and a $119 million dollar fine.

Both worked at Schuylkill Products in Cressona, Schuylkill County.

The company supplies concrete bridge beams for highway projects.

Officials say the men had been illegally obtaining bids from the Department of Transportation.
